Lot sizing procedure requirement in REM MTO scenario.

Hi PP Gurus,

The requirement is to get no. of planned orders taking 125kg as fixed quantity. Actually Client wants to give unique batch no. to each planned order though their daily Production quantity is fixed if they get order (that's why we prefer REM).

We know, it is possible in Discrete Manufacturing environment by taking appropriate MRP type with Lot size FX and giving proper lot. After taking MRP run system will create that much Planned order depending on Fixed Lot that we have given in Materials master of that material. But is it possible in Repetitive Manufacturing environment?

We took MRP type PD, Strategy Grp 20 with Fixed lot size 125, REM profile 0002 (standard) with Rate routing and Materials BOM combination in Production Version. Everything required for REM maintained properly. We already checked SAP IDES, there is no such scenario.

Please suggest the best possible options and make your prompt comments.

Thanks & Regards,

Abu Arbab

    Can you try order splitting (FS) and in the takht time enter the number of in house production days (1). In the rounding value assign the quantity for the daily lot size.

    In OMI4

    Use the lot size FS

    set the indicator last lot to exact

    set the overlapping ind as -

    Enter the Rounding value as 6 ( example)

    In material master MRP 3 VIEW

    set the lot size as FS

    enter the takt time as 1 day if you want daily

    planned order and two if you want planned orders

    alternate day.

    Enter fixed lot size as multiple of rounding value

      Hi R. Brahmankar and PP Gurus,

      Could you please suggest the right and best strategy for MTO REM scenario with valuated stock type that will support this splitting in Planned order quantity?
